Inside Mermaid Oyster Bar, Another Fish Shack for the Village


Mermaid Oyster Bar opened last night in the former Smith’s space. Rob Patronite and Robin Raisfeld previewed the menu in their opening report this week: “Chef Laurence Edelman rounds out the seafaring menu with lobster bisque, tagliatelle fra diavolo, and soft-corn-tortilla tacos filled with shrimp, chorizo, or fried tilapia.” Now check out the sea-worthy décor in our slideshow.
